Think you've got what it takes to howl with Canis lupus? Join the Milwaukee County Zoo's three gray wolves in celebrating Wolf Awareness Day. During zookeeper talks, you'll learn wolf facts. For example, genetic studies have determined that wolves are the ancestors of all modern dogs. A howling competition at 1 p.m., with prizes for best adult and child howls, will have you barking at the moon. Learn what wolves eat and check out wolf "toys" as zookeepers explain what it takes to keep these animals active and engaged.
